If musical spiritual upliftment is what you need then this show is your remedy.
Prince allah is revered within the reggae music fraternity as a devote Rastaman whom lives by his words and deeds with righteous actions. His music has produced some of roots reggae music classics anthems. With hits such as 'Sun is shinning', 'Bucket Bottom', 'Lots Wife' and 'Stone'.
He has recorded with some of Jamaica's top producers, including Tappa Zukie, (STARS) Bertram Brown (FREEDOM SOUNDS), The Oswald Bros (HEADPHONE).
His album, 'Only love can conquer' for UK based Blood and Fire in the late 70?s introduced his work to a new and very receptive audience.
Subsequent productions with the likes of UK based Jah Shaka, Switzerland based Jah Warrior and a host of digital roots producers has maintained his high standing within the music fraternity. With many top international artist quoting him as a main inspirational influence.
Normally at ease in the hills of Jamaica this is a rear opportunity to experience the musical and spiritual genius of a true Rastaman.
Introducing for the first time live on stage in the UK, a talent which has been described as, echoing the voice of Burning Spear and other vintage roots artist, but no one sounding quite like Daweh.
His delivery of poetry is unique. He remains one of the most unfulfilled potential in reggae music.
Debuting in 1995 with the highly acclaimed' MILITANCY' album on the RUNN NETHERLANDS Label. High expectations was expected of this young sounding Burning Spear.
His mesmerising voice and sharp social commentary fills dance floors wherever his productions are played. His dub plates are the most sort after by sound systems worldwide. Now we have finally managed to get him in the uk on a tour live as opposed to a recording level. Daweh has come to fulfil that potential.
Hailing from the jah youth stable prince Liv-I-jah is respected on the UK roots circuit as one of the top mc. Performing tracks from his long awaited debut album with legendary UK roots producer Gussie P on the sip a cup label. Remember this name.
Is a Legendary DJ and producer from Kingston Jamaica. His ?MAN A WARRIOR? LP included the track MPLA which earn him respect and cult following within the music fraternity rocker Patti Smith being one of his most influential fans.
With his international success he was able to launch his own stars label, which gave him grassroots success with such artiste as Price Alla, Jnr Ross and the Spears,
Knowledge And the Might Diamonds.
While his stage performances are rear in the U.K now, he remains an icon in the reggae world and is gusting to enhance the performance of one of his label artist Prince Alla.
Roots of reggae are privileged to have him supporting this event.
